Twenty years, the Nisga'a in British Columbia voted in favour of the first signed agreement in the province's ongoing modern treaty process. Most of the First Nations in BC never signed treaties or surrendered their traditional territories. The treaty the Nisga'a signed gave them land title to about 2,000 square kilometres, paid nearly $200 million in compensation, and gave them the right to govern themselves and no longer be under the jurisdiction of the Indian Act.
